The data is vital for planning and preparation for incursions of bee pests and to respond effectively when an outbreak occurs.

Having correct information enables us to alert beekeepers that they may be vulnerable to the pest, identify sites where the pest might be found and plan surveillance and control strategies.

APHA needs to increase the number of beekeepers that register on their Beebase system and encourage those already registered to provide accurate and up-to-date information on the number of hives in their apiaries.
